A Foreign Big Brother House is an international twist that appeared in various seasons of Big Brother. It is where the housemates will be living in a foreign Big Brother house for the whole season or for a specific period of time. It first appeared in Big Brother V.I.P (Denmark) when it used Big Brother Norway house.
Unlike the usual Big Brother seasons, this twist brings one season to another country, where in they will be using another Big Brother House from another Big Brother franchise, with housemates flying from their home country to the foreign Big Brother house where they will be living over the course of the twist or the entire series.
Usually, the foreign houses used in some seasons were specially decorated with various cultural decor representing the country where it was located.

- Most of the seasons that featured this twist were pre-recorded.
- Some seasons that featured this twist were pilot seasons of Big Brother that tested the reality show in a foreign country's Big Brother house before creating their own house.
